Word of the Week: It is strange when Stanley & Katrina are in CONCORD.


Before we get to the Word of the Week, we would like to congratulate the winner of our Virtual Author Visit Package: Barabara Ann Mojica. Barbara is the author of the "Little Miss History Travels To" children's book series. Congratulations, Barbara!

Stanley & I made a video for this week's word, since Muhlenberg Elementary Center is celebrating their 150th Word of the Week this week.

A Kickstarter Song, a Hero's Guide, a Staff, and a Blog Hop?

Yay, it is Kid Lit Blog Hop time!
Welcome to our post for Kid Lit Blog Hop #39.

We are lucky pets, check out this fun parody of the song "New York, New York" written just for us for our Kickstarter Project, by the lovely Donna Marie of WriterSideUp
Thank you, Ms. Donna Marie! 

WHAT IS NEIGHBOR GIRL READING?  


Neighbor Girl picked up a copy of Christopher Healy's book, The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw at the library, last night. Nine chapters into the book and she has this to say, "It is just as funny as the last two. This is a great series!" 


She ALSO just began reading Rick Riordan's Staff of Serapis, which is now available as and ebook. This book also receives high praise from Neighbor Girl. Although, we admit, she may be biased, since she was part of the HuffPost Live program where Rick Riordan did the cover reveal for the book.  :)

This is a great combination. If you visit our "Things We Love" page, you will notice that both Rick Riordan and Christopher Healy are our top two favorite authors that have great places to visit on the web.
